  • Painters' 30 Mandy Jo Ganieany featured on Brotherhood Outdoors
    Posted On: Jul 13, 2020

    Illinois Sportswoman Aims Crossbow at Trophy Wyoming Whitetail on Brotherhood Outdoors TV

    Normal, IL. —Mandy Jo Ganieany, a union organizer from Normal, Ill., heads to Northeast Wyoming’s cattle country for her first-ever crossbow hunt for a trophy whitetail on the next episode of the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance’s (USA) Brotherhood Outdoors TV series.

    Director of Organizing for Painters District Council 30 in Aurora, Ganieany is a 16-year union veteran. She began as an apprentice drywall finisher and advanced to industrial painting and finishing before becoming District Council 30’s first female organizer. A quick learner on the job, she also has been honing her hunting skills for six years and is proficient with both a shotgun and compound bow.

    Ganieany breaks new ground in the rolling hills outside Gillette, Wyoming, when she picks up a crossbow in an effort to tag a big whitetail. Joining Ganieany on this episode of Brotherhood Outdoors is USA Communications Manager Kate Nation.

    The show opens with Ganieany at the shooting range where she combines her shotgun and archery skills to quickly master the technical side of shooting a crossbow. Then, it is on to Wyoming where the hunters encounter several quality bucks over several days, until they establish a bedding/feeding pattern for the one she wants.

    “Mandy Jo credits her union for providing her with more opportunities than she ever dreamed possible—including her hunt with Brotherhood Outdoors,” said Nation. “She was extremely grateful for the experience, well-prepared and confident that she would be ready to make a successful shot when the right buck came along.

    See what happens next by tuning into Ganieany’s extraordinary hunt on Brotherhood Outdoors when it airs on the Sportsman Channel Tuesday, July 7 at 4 p.m. with re-airs Friday at 11:30 a.m., Saturday at 1:30 a.m. and Sunday, July 12 at 11 a.m. Eastern.

    Tune in to Brotherhood Outdoors each week as union members pursue trophy whitetails in Wyoming, bull redfish in Louisiana, mountain lions in Utah, stealthy mule deer in Colorado, and more.
